Exit On Your Own Terms And Conditions.

According to the 2016 BEI Business Owner Survey, 80% of business owners polled believe that a successful exit from their business will occur because of planning and action items they implement.  

HOWEVER, that same survey revealed that 83% of business owners polled did not have a concrete, written plan for their exit.  

We exist to change that statistic.  Our value proposition is comprehensive, objective, values-based advice and planning for an owner's eventual exit and desired legacy.

Do you know what your business is really worth to a potential buyer? 

Do you know how you want to exit your business...and when? 

Do you know if you and your business are ready for you to exit successfully?

We assess both personal and business readiness for exit, identify key planning gaps, and make recommendations for plan design and implementation.

Deliverable is a foundational plan for exit with the following components:

  • Increased clarity of owner-based exit goals & objectives.
